PS3 Video Download Service Launches Summer 2008 50°
358w ago - According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, which cites anonymous film studio executives, Sony is set to launch its online video download service later this summer.

As rumors have previously suggested, sources close to the LA Times say that the online store will closely integrated with Sony's PlayStation Network. Among the store's initial offerings are said to be movies and television shows.

It's no secret that a video store is coming. The only question is when. If this report is to be believed, the service will launch in summer. Which makes sense, considering the annual E3 Business and Media Summit kicks off in July.

No Split-Screen Multiplayer for GTA4

No Split-Screen Multiplayer for GTA4 400°
358w ago - There's been a lot of inquiries made lately about Grand Theft Auto 4, PlayStation 3's multiplayer mode, and what types of games it will support. Among the hot topics are whether or not split-screen action will be available.

The answer? Don't bet on it.

Stephen Totilo of the MTV Multiplayer blog has posted recently that the feature just isn't there. He says he learned of this from Rockstar Games itself as he played a Devkit version of the game via a local network in the developer's New York City office.

The blogger points out that limitations in hardware is a probable reason for the feature being omitted. He reasons that the sheer size of Liberty City being rendered split-screen may be a bit too much even with the hardware of the Xbox 360 and the PS3. He also points out that the feature seems less essential in an age when most people who'll be playing GTA 4 can easily have multiplayer action online.

Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games will launch GTA 4 come April 29th. The game has already gone gold and is touted as this year's biggest software entertainment release.

New Wardevil screenshots for PS3, trailer coming soon 100°
359w ago - According to the developers over at Digi-Guys, the Wardevil: Unleash the Beast Within posters will start to develop some of the style and mood that'll be a part of the game.

For those of you who don't know already, Wardevil is a PS3 exclusive and is set to hit sometime near the end of 2008 or possibly early 2009.

The game will feature an all new game engine called, RTE1080, which allows for 60fps animations and 1080p resolutions. As you may have seen in our last screenshot update, the game also features high resolution textures.

Some details the developers have told PSU:

- They are not finished with the game yet, still adding improvements both gameplay wise and graphically.
- They are making good use of the SPU's and streaming off of the Blu-ray disc
- Their goal is to get the Blu-ray film & game to look as identical as possible...so there is no transition between game/cinematic
